Australian native plants have been a popular option for gardeners for many years, but only rarely are the words 'locally indigenous' used when selecting species. Locally indigenous natives are the plants that evolved to grow naturally in a particular area. In the case of the Adelaide metropolitan area, these plants remain almost unknown by the general public, largely because the unique native woodlands and wetlands of the Adelaide Plains have long since succumbed to urban development. This pocket-sized guide aims to bring Adelaide's very beautiful - but now largely forgotten - indigenous flora back into the spotlight for nature enthusiasts and home gardeners alike. The Native Plants of Adelaide profiles over 100 of the most important (and formerly most common) indigenous species. Each plant is depicted by at least one photograph accompanied by information about its former distribution, uses for humans, and tips about growing it in your own garden. Indigenous native gardens have a special, informal beauty, but are still very rare in Adelaide. This book hopes to inform and inspire gardeners to make them less so!
